Push PDF file to Dynamic CRM

Requirement Background, > Have invoice file (PDF) visible/downloadable for Customer portal users. > Customer portal users are managed by Dynamics CRM online. > So we have a MS flow to read the PDF files from an SFTP location and post it into respective folder path Sharepoint. > But the CRM wasn't able to access that file path in Sharepoint and also we weren't able to figure the impersonation needed for the CRM user to fetch from Sharepoint. What we are trying to do now is... > To have MS flow write to Sharepoint as well as insert a record in Dynamics CRM Online custom entity having the file in binary format. Problem, The SFTP output body is not accepted as a valid input to the binary (Image) field in the CRM. We tried Base64ToBinary, simply mapping the SFTP body/content to the field, etc. etc. Nothing works and we keep getting 400, BadRequest, Invalid Argument errors. Please help.

Hi @ExpertNovice,


How is your flow created? Could you share a screenshot of your flow?


Do you want to save the file in SharePoint library? Besides, do you want to save the file in binary format as well as in Dynamics 365?



Best regards,
